    A husband's take on quilting, Part 3

    I have come to really enjoy this guy's writing. He has a clever way with words.

    I love reading this guy, he's so right on about us.
    thanks for sharing again, and continue to do so.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I read it trying to relate but I just don't get it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    His idea of sorting colors makes perfect sense if coming from that point of view!

    I use to read a blog a quilter's husband wrote. I think it was Popster. His posts actually became a book. He started when his wife first started to quilt and all his posts were sent by email newsletter. Long ago that was the only way to get posts and board forums, by group email, before blogs. Anyway does anyone remember Popster? I can't find his website.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Still shaking my head and smiling! I believe this is the way my hubby would approach sorting fabric into color groups. He's very proud of me for taking up quilting, and tries to show interest and enable me, but I have learned to only ask him to draw out my ideas for quilt blocks on graph paper. He loves that!

    My DH is a science guy and he does not get quilting at all. To him it is all "nice, Hon." He enjoys the idea that I go off on my own and entertain myself while he plays around with the garden and his many plants and collection of bugs from the garden which he looks at under the microscope to identify and classify and whatever else he does down there with his seeds, clones and crossbreeds and hybrids, etc., etc. He once asked me why I would take perfectly good fabric and cut it up and sew it and make another perfectly good fabric. But, I see him curled up in the bed with one of the quilts I have made and I know why I quilt, so every morning I send him off to the basement shop to play with his plants and his bugs. I also cook whatever he brings up from the garden and that makes him happy. Together we are warm and fed and happy and busy.
